Interview with your MC (1 Viewer)


Senior Member
Meet my MC Sam, a 17 year old girl surviving in the aftermath of the collapse of the U.S.

1. There's no point in using this opportunity to talk to living people. All the ones I know are fairly close. I think I would want to talk to my parents. The thought of having to see them again terrifies me, but I'd want them to know that what I did, it was for the best. I just hope they forgive me. I don't think they will.
2. Interesting question, but the answer is that I would drive on. Before the apocalypse I'd be worried that I would end up inspiring an episode of Criminal Minds, nowadays It's very difficult to trust people. Even the ones you think you know.
3. Parallel universes? Yeah, those are cool. Aren't they, like, universes that are similar to our own but are different in any way imaginable. Man, if they were real I'd hop my way over to a universe where I get to have my own house in the mountains, with a fast WiFi connection, of course.
4. Before the apocalypse we had two cats. They disappeared in the first winter. I only hope they're still out there. Maybe they went south, to mexico. Completely irrational, I know. Now I have a dog that I found. His name is Marx, and he's a German shepherd dog. He's blind in one eye and has very little remaining of his left ear. He's well-trained though and very loyal. I'm not sure he could be called a pet, he pretty much pulls his own weight and takes more care of me than I do him. I'd call him a friend.
5. Oh, you're talking about Matt? Shoot, There's a lot of things I find annoying about him. We could write a whole book about the various ways he annoys me. I'll just list three. One, he is never serious. Two, His annoying smile. Three, I love him.

My questions:
1. What's your favourite music genre?
2. Are you computer literate?
3. Where do you call home?
4. What is something you never leave home without?
5. Favourite colour?

1. When are you from?
Third Era Sersteen. It was somewhere along the opposing side of the mountain where current Sersteen is now. Perhaps I'm the last remaining soul who knows of its location.

2. How do you feel about endless miles of sand?
what, you mean Serbane? it's a horrible place with horrible people. the same can be said about anything off-continent. Who would be so foolish to attempt life in the Sands anyway?

3. Most closely kept secret?
My first love, Gable. I'm pretty sure she was with child before her death.

4. How would you react to everyone you cherished being put to the blade? Well, I would attempt to save them! Show me someone who would do any differently, and I'll prove them worthy of death themselves.

5. What are your thoughts on inter-dimensional travel?
it'll be used in war before the end of the Era. you will see. I won't be there to stop it this time.

1. What do you contemplate most often?
2. what is the easiest way for someone to earn your respect?
3. what is the wisest use for a large sum of money?
4. would you die for your country?
5. What, in your opinion, is the ideal weapon?
Ricky (from The Truly Immortal Mr. Capriccio)

1. I don't 'contemplate' a whole lot. *laughs* Recently, I guess, I've been strategizing over how to track down that Jinks bastard. If you're thinking more personal, I occasionally wonder what my father would think, if he saw me now.

2. By cutting to the chase, and not bullshitting around.

3. That's a question for Kim, not me.

4. Sure, for what's left of it. *laughs again*

5. Shotgun. Loaded with silver.

Tanith March, theater director of my current WIP, Perfect Match

1: Insensitive, Jan Arden

2: Like the Highlander, in whatever way lets me return to life.

3: The rat that once lived beneath the stage floor.

4: I'll do anything to keep my theater up and running, which sadly includes putting up with and tending to all the baggage that comes with the position. This would include the adorably racist old man who volunteers his time as a ticket collector and window washer but does little to nothing else of use.

5: You could say loyalty is as much a curse as it is a virtue. See the rat beneath the floorboards. It saved my life once and now it lives with me. Go figure.

My questions:

1: What song lyric sums up your philosophy on life?

2: You don't want to meet your friend's new baby. How do you get out of it?

3: What would you be doing for a job if you weren't doing what you absolutely had to do now?

4: On your daily commute you see something at a garage sale that you would break laws to obtain. What is it?

5: How would you describe the weather?

Mercury Moore. Art student who loves painting and being deep and moody.

  1. Lottie Blake. She is lavender if lavender was a person.
  2. Dark chocolate. It’s bittersweet just like my life.
  3. I got good at playing the harmonica. I don’t do it much now. But when I was younger, it was something to fill the silence.
  4. Breathe underwater. I don’t like heights. Underwater is peaceful.
  5. When I was 10, we were renting a flat in the countryside. It was a hot day and my mum took me blackberry picking. By the end our hands and teeth were stained purple. I remember her from afar, holding buckets overflowing with blackberries, gazing up at the impossibly blue sky. The sun made her hair glow bronze. She looked happy. I felt that finally, we had found a home.

1. *laughs* Nowhere. I'll just stay on the road my whole life.
2. Well, it's still legal to kill babies in my state, so I'd have to go with that.

To some degree. I thought I saw my mama right after she died when I was 11.

Quigley Down Under. Though anything with Tom Selleck is good.

3. What's your sense of humor?

Ha! Sarcastic with a side of bitchy.

Honesty. Loyalty. Work ethic. Good in the sack doesn't hurt.

Nah. I figure the good Lord put an expiration date on us for a reason. Besides - I got too many loved ones in Heaven I wanna see someday. If I make it, that is.

Note: These answers are going to be post-story, as in the events already happened. so, uh spoilers. :p

(Let me get into character here.... clears throat)

Greetings, I am Empress Kristol, Leader of the Avytorean Empire, feel free to ask me any question.

1. What's your favorite song lyric?
Aside from the Ballad of King Iatiten, which is about my father, I would say the Legend of King Marcavii, the second King of Tirvuk, who was loved by his people and feared by his enemies, he also married three women, though they were triplets.

2. What's your favorite childhood memory?

Exploring my first Xylthean ruin, at the end of my Ancestor, King Constantine's, Quest. discovering the massive Iron-serpents that could carry hundreds across the lands, back and fourth.

3. Love or money?

Love! and Roasted Rabbit, I mean I have all the money I would ever need, as an Empress. But my beloved General Maxenious is always there for me, dedicated, loyal and ready to die for me on a moment's notice. Not to mention he's pretty good in... (pauses as she clears throat) ... oh, excuse me got carried away.

4. Family or fame?

Family! after all I am an Empress, I am pretty much the number one lady in my nation, but anyone so much as harms a single hair on any of my family, especially my children and they'll see what kind of wrath I can unleash on them, they will be banging on the gates of hell to get away from me. Even Tyrell himself couldn't stop me from enacting my revenge. (recomposes herself), Forgive me... go on.

5. What's your reason for getting up in the morning?
My Empire, I built with these hands (raises hands as she clenches them). To watch it prosper, it's citizens, my fellow citizens go about their days, doing their part to help the Empire Prosper. The beautiful smiles on my children, being in my husband's arms, walking the line of troops as I inspect them. Of course the occasional roasted rabbit doesn't hurt, nor battles against the Empire's enemies.

Any ways... I really must go.

(Out of character)

alright my turn...

1. Who inspired you or do you look up to, why do you do what you do?
2. What is your favorite meal or snack?
3. If you could meet another character from any other story, movie, Video game, who would it be?
4. What is your greatest fear?
5. What is your greatest hope?
